Founded in 2002 with the mission to preserve the memory of Northwest Airlines' exciting and colorful history.
The History Centre is operated and staffed by former employees and retirees of Northwest Airlines and friends of the airline. All donate their time as non-paid volunteers.
Income received by the History Centre from memberships, donations and the sale of books and merchandise goes towards furthering the goals of the NWA History Centre.
We have "something for everyone" who has even a passing interest in commercial aviation and, specifically, the 13 airlines that comprise the Northwest Airlines family.
A handsome collection of airplane models dates from Northwest's beginnings in 1926. Many other unique and interesting artifacts, historical documents and pictures are on display.
As each day passes, another bit of aviation lore is lost. Join us now as a member, volunteer, or donor, and help us preserve the past for future generations.
Dedicated to preserving the history of a great airline and its people.
